Sports Day! 

On Wednesday 8th July we are going to hold a mini sports day with the children during their PE session in school and we would like YOU at home to join in with us!


The activities are as follows:


Standing long Jump – no run up:

You must jump from 2 feet to 2 feet – measure from take off point to your heel where you land.


Speed bounce over cones or a line:

How many times can you jump keeping your feet together sideways over a barrier in 20 seconds?


Target Throw 

Lay out/make 3 hoops (approx 3m,5m,7m away from you) and attempt to throw one bean bag (or something similar e.g. socks) into each.

  • Score 2 points every time the bean bag lands in the correct hoop
  • Score 1 point if it partially goes in or slides in having touched the floor first (2 minutes)


Chest Push

Throw a 4 ball as far as possible using only a chest push motion. No turning or twisting body – 2 hands on the ball – must come from chest.


Shuttle run

10 x 10 metres – how quickly can you complete this? (measured in seconds)



Please be creative if you do not have exactly the correct equipment e.g. draw chalk circles instead of hoops, use a pair of socks instead of a beanbag, etc.


Let us know how you get on by sending us your results via Purple Mash or email ( You could even send us a video of yourself completing these activities!
